Bishop Gene did a brilliant exegesis of the texts for the day based around the central premise that too many Christians mistakenly believe that they are on the Selection Committee when we should all be on the Welcoming Committee.

Then we sang a hymn, we were blessed by Gene and we gave him a standing ovation that lasted longer than Jessye Norman would have expected in her heyday.
When I got home this evening I noticed that the Grand Tufti is demanding that there should be a moratorium on including gay people in the Anglican Church. Well, all I can say to him after today's experience is...
YOU'RE TOO BLOODY LATE, MATE!
... the new thing has begun.
Go read it, and give Maddie some props.
